Homecoming football tonight at Irish Stadium
Coming off back-to-back losses to state-ranked conference rivals Lakeville North and Lakeville South, the Rosemount football team is probably looking forward to its matchup against winless Apple Valley in tonight's Homecoming game at Irish Stadium.
The Irish (3-2) have won their last three games against Apple Valley by a combined score of 101-16. The Eagles (0-5) haven't scored in their last two games and have been outscored 195-34 in their five losses this season. Overall, the program has won just three of its last 24 games.
The Irish started the season 3-0 before turnovers took them out of games against No. 8 North and No. 4 South the last two weeks. The team has lost six fumbles and thrown three interceptions in five games.
Andy Gustafson leads the traditional Irish ground attack with 422 yards on 94 carries. Quarterback Nate LeMoine has rushed for 316 yards and a score and thrown for 501 yards and five touchdowns.
